About The Programs
The Speeders Programs are Canada’s first skating program that set sight on recruiting, but not limited to, children in the Chinese community.
Calgary is one of the most renowned speed skating hubs in the world. We hope the establishment of the programs will escalate the involvement of the young generations of the Chinese community in the sport of speed skating.
The Speeders Programs are offered to children age 4-14 years old, no previous skating experience required. Registered skaters will be grouped based on their ability and age at training sessions.
Our programs focus on coaching the fundamental skills and techniques of speed skating, developing children’s general athletic ability and building self confidence through those athletic achievement.
Performance and Fun are the core values of the Speeders Programs
The programs are offered at the legacy facility of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games:
Olympic Oval | University of Calgary
288 Collegiate Blvd NW, Calgary, AB T2N 1N4
